The TRAIL Funchal 31km 1550 D+ is a real trail running competition, with the distance and unevenness raising the level of difficulty to very hard. The participants will experience different terrains and surroundings that vary between the 500 and the 1.480 meters of altitude in forest and middle mountain areas, on the residential environment of Monte Parish. Asphalt, dirt track or cement, in  large and easy to run paths, or winding paths and trails, with steep slopes running up and down, very technical floors, stone or gravel, wet or dry, with or without vegetation will make this competition a continual Trail Running adventure.

TFX 19KM 480 D+  Courses for GPS here!

The 19km course with departure from the reception of the Funchal Ecological Park, gathers all the characteristics of a trail running competition, but with less distance and unevenness. It’s a great opportunity for those beginning in this modality or just wishes to enjoy the atmosphere of a competition but in a walking pace.
